the national turnout. host: barack obama losing the pennsylvania primary to hillary clinton but when the state in the general election four years ago. this point -- living in the heart of pennsylvania, i can assure you that obama was right to say how people cling to to their guns and religion. will that resonate in 2012? guest: that as a comment that has certainly stuck with a lot of pennsylvanian, particularly in the southwestern part, the more conservative democratic areas. the president made that statement in a san francisco fund-raiser in the midst of the democratic primary in pennsylvania in march and april, that primary in 2008. we six week period where there was literally nothing else going on in the campaign except the upcoming pennsylvania primary. that became a huge issue. what it does remind voters, particularly in the southwestern part of the state, of the president's position on guns. pennsylvania is a strong nra pro-gun state. it has been difficult for gun control advocates to get legislation through pennsylvania changing the gun laws here. i do not see any opportunity -- there i

senatorun from the state of illinois, barack obama! (crowd cheering) >> narrator: he was virtually unknown. but he had, in effect, been writing the speech since punahou, and oxy, and those long years in new york city. >> tonight is a particular honor for me because, let's face it, my presence on this stage is pretty unlikely. my father was a foreign studen born and raised in a small village in kenya. >> he put himself in the middle of the american story and he made people feel that there was still an america that could come together despite all of the divisions, and that in some way or another he was able to embody those aspirations about what americans thought they wanted to see happen in the country. >> there is not a liberal america and a conservative america, there is the united states of america. the is not a black america, a white amerota, a latino america, an asian america, there's the united states of america. >> michelle sees this happening. and she has tears streaming down her cheeks. i'm sitting in the crowd, and a woman next to me is crying, bawling her eyes out. she just keeps
the presidency without holding on to ohio. president obama knows that he really needs to win the state if he is to get those 270 electoral votes. so president obama really trying to make up for lost time, tamron, with some of these key swing state voters. as you know, he spent the past three days managing the federal response to sandy. that allowed him to look presidential, of course, but he had to cancel a number of campaign events including in wisconsin. so earlier today in wisconsin, he talked about that issue of romney painting himself as the candidate of change. he basically said that's not the case. he said, look, romney can't be trusted. he's not the candidate of change. is he a candidate who essentially espouses the same policies as george w. bush which president obama has argued is exactly what got the country into the financial mess that it was in during the recession. tamron. >> kristen, speaking of change, the president has modified his stump speech according to david axelrod, a more affirmative tone, but also pointing out the vision of what they say they are fighting for. >> rep
their message in the wake of the storm but that could change today with five days left president obama goes back on the campaign trail with events in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. governor romney arrives in virginia a day after an event in another battleground state. >> mitt romney campaigned in florida wednesday but during his three rallies he never once mentioned president obama by name. >> i understand what it takes to get this country going again. and to bring back the kind of greatness we depend on. >> he refrained from an all out attack on the president who was visiting with disaster victims in new jersey. instead romney made his own pitch to help those affected by the storm. >> if you have the ability to help please provide some resources to people there and give calls to your loved ones and keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it's a big part of what america is. >> the romney campaign ended up back pedalling wednesday over remarks he made about disaster relief funding. at a republican primary debate last year romney down played the federal government's role in disaster response. >>
the storm damage with chris christie president obama hits the campaign trail traveling to three states and mitt romney starts a rally in virginia. a company tied to the massachusetts pharmacy linked to the meningitis outbreak has announce ad major recall. ameridoes is recalling its products from pain killers. steroids have been connected to the meningitis outbreak that killed 29 people. >>> smugglers from mexico tried an unusual approach to getting the goods over the border. they tried to drive their jeep cherokee over the top of the 14-foot fence in southeast california using a makeshift ramp. agents on patrol came across the jeep just as it got stuck. two people trying to free it fled back into mexico when agents got there. they tried. >>> the streets of san francisco were awash in orange and black not for halloween but to salute the baseball giants. there was a parade wednesday. fans carried brooms. guess why, by the way? to represent san francisco's four game sweep of the tigers. i didn't immediately think that. that just me? i was thinking witches and halloween. cool. good to see.
president of the united states. >> obama is expected to be thrown into the limelight. he can barely show his face in public without creating some kind osensation... >> narrator: by january 2005,io barack obama was a unid stat senator on the rise. >> he came to the senate almost immediately with everyone's high expectations, with everyone's assumption that this was a man who was on a fast track. >> narrator: but for obama, life as a legislator in congress was not what he had in mind. >> as soon as he gets to the u.s. senate, he's bored. he is pretty open about the fact that the senate is too slow andr it's a place where you basically have to spend several terms before you have any power and influence. obama was never going to be the kind of guy who, you know, ends up in a wheelchair on the senate floor. >> narrator: after only a year in the senate, he started asking the question that had been asked ever since the boston speech: should he run for president? we went to my favorite restaurant and took the kitchen table in the back where nobody could see us.nt i tell him he should do it and that
obama when he is reelected, elizabeth warren for senate. we want to hear from those in non-swing states this morning. the phone lines are open. as we are waiting for you to call, i will point to the front page of usa today. the headline -- four days to seal the deal. after a brief campaign hiatus' courtesy of hurricane sandy, president obama and mitt romney resumed campaigning. the candidate's weekend travel schedules made it clear where the election was likely to be decided. obama was slated to return to ohio today. saturday, sunday and monday. he was set to appear in iowa, virginia, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was doubled to campaign in ohio, went -- wisconsin, new hampshire and virginia. statewide polls differ on who was ahead in colorado and i what it should obama with a single digit lead in nevada and wisconsin. eight of nine surveys are the past week and a crucial ohio give obama a narrow edge. and we will be focusing on a violator in today's "washington journal." and our swing state series. we want to hear from voters and not-swing states. we want to he

the obama campaign is now going to go by advertising in some of these states as well. minnesota, and michigan and pennsylvania for some of this late romney moved. pennsylvania i don't really buy that its competitive. i've been keeping a close eye on it for a long time, but if it's going to be then it's going to be competitive because republicans are going to be able to turn out a large number of voters in the western half of the state, pittsburgh, johnstown the user be held by jack murtha is told by congressman mark chris was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are
, president obama will head to new jersey to see the damage in that state with governor chris christie. the federal government in the washington, d.c. area will open for business on a regular schedule on wednesday after being closed monday and tuesday. in new york, the stock exchange opened for business after being closed for two days. >> i especially like watching the gavel-to-gavel coverage. it is the only place to get the real deal. i like that the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on. there is not too much analysis. i appreciate how i can release the crew and understand the programming itself, and i can get my analysis elsewhere. if you want to see how your government works directly, then c-span is just about the only place to go. >> c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> let's get the album that documents the grace coolidge family. part of the could family papers. we have one box that is just photographs and then several boxes of other documents. the photographs are heavy. the
with obama having a steady lead. it is a democratic leaning state these days. there has not been an awful lot of campaign activity in terms of visits by the candidates or advertising. they have now really targeted the state this year on like 2008 in the last previous four cycles. host: there has been an awful lot of advertising in the senate races. your polls are showing that the senate race has been considerably closer. he is still holding onto a slight lead, seven points over republican tom smith. what has been happening in that race? caller: is a simple matter if you spend $17 million of your own money, you can get hearing from people. the senator is a member of an institution that is not really very popular these days, the congress. smith is gaining traction just on the strength of his message. and introducing himself to voters. that could be one of the surprises on election night. host: what can republicans read in these polling numbers? caller: on the presidential race? president obama is up 49%, still below 50%. it seems pennsylvania could be a little bit more competitive if they made

by state, president obama has the tiniest of leads. what you saw in that focus group, a lot of anger, frustration and desire for this election to be over with. >> you were saying, frank, if the vote was at this moment, you believe what? >> if the vote was this moment, i believe mitt romney wins popular vote by the tiniest margin and i believe president obama wins the electoral college. >> no, i mean in ohio. in ohio. >> i think the vote right now, obama's got about a 1, 1 1/2 point lead. within the margin of error or close enough that romney can close in the last 96 hours. that's why this rally that's happening tonight is so important for >>> millionses of sandy's victims still have no electricity, so what do they do with all that food in the refrigerator? we'll show you what to keep and what to toss coming up next on "cbs this morning." with no added sugar, just one glass equals two servings of fruit. very fruit-tritious. or, try ocean spray light 50, with just 50 calories, a full serving of fruit and no added sugar. with tasty flavors like cranberry-pomegranate and cranberry- conco
.9%. 2008, president obama won the state by over six percentage points, the first time a democrat won the state of virginia since 1964. joining us from the university of virginia is the director of their politics center. larry sabato, what are the issues being campaigned on in virginia? guest: the same issues as. every as the economy is for most, i suppose. if there's any special flavor into virginia, we cover all 50 states at the center for politics at the university of virginia, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of
it he is coopting one of rom romm's visible surrogate and it is good for chris christie his state will go for barack obama example it is a win, win as the campaign starts today. chris christie was out and shook a lot of hand and a lot of people were waiting to see him there and there he was. watch this. >> you have to see the people that are affected by this. they need to see us. me, and the mayor and others who are going to be the folks to lead them back and rebuild this. there is no retreating from this. we'll assess the damage and rebuild. that's the way it is in new jersey. chris christy said the damage to the injuriesy shore was unspeakable. >> gretchen: in the meantime peter doocy has covered the rohobus beach in delaware. >> nationally 51 people have been kill would by sandy, including children and police officers. this morning, millions of americans are still in the dark. they don't have lights or heat which is going to be a problem on a very chilly final day of october. we learned yesterday. it will be in the first week of november before the new york city subway system.
not campaigned in the eastern half of the state at all. whereas, president obama has made quite a few appearances in the eastern part of the state, although not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice-president biden. they have a tendency to campaign in the eastern part of the state which is where their political strength has been. host: the president has not been in north carolina since the convention. are people taking notice of that? guest: yes. the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. governor romney was here a few weeks back, made an appearance in asheville, but that was mainly to have a visit with polygram, a much publicized visit, a visit to convey the message that it was ok for religious conservatives to vote for a mormon. vice-president joe biden has been here several times. so, this has been a battleground state but not a top tier battleground state. clearly, we have not seen the major candidates here, but we have seen a lot of campaigning we have seen something like $80 million spent here in campaign ads. we have seen as much advertising here as mo
francisco supervisor and mayor of the city, we did every two weeks we had that passive resolution of state of emergency so we could provide needle exchange in our city. that was eventually lifted, and then the republican congress brought it back. president obama promised not to be as aggressive as bush was on some of the raids. but now here in california in particular they've been even more aggressive. >> i'm very critical of the president across the board on this stuff, but just to be fair, what is going on in california and a few other states is being driven not by the white house or the justice department in washington. it's driven by the local u.s. attorneys. it's the local u.s. attorney here in melissa haig and others around the state who are hyper aggressive and they're not collaborating with city and county government who is are regulating medical encourage in marijuana in a responsible way. what obama is doing is he's showing a failure of leadership. 's not leading the aggressive attacks, but he's not pulling back on ways he could be doing on what they are doing. >> legalization ve
post-bubble recoveries, the united states is ready for a robust revival. this is partly because of the dynamism of the u.s. economy but also because of the timely and intelligent actions of the fed and the obama administration. the next president will reap the rewards of work already done. so it would be the ultimate irony if having strongly criticized every measure that contributed to these positive trends mitt romney ends up presiding over what she would surely call the romney recovery. for more on this, go to cnn/fareed for a link to my "washington post" column. and let's get started. >>> let's get straight to our terrific panel to talk about the economy and obviously a little politics, as well. joe klein is "time's" political economist. amity shlaes is director for the 4% project at the george w. bush institute and author of the forthcoming "coolidge: a biography of america's 30th president." ken rogoff, whom i mentioned, is a professor of economics at harvard university, and amity shlaes is the author of thompson reuters digital and author of "politocrats." become back to b

, by 84,000. all told, it signaled slow but steady growth, and it was news that president obama wanted to play up in the campaign's final weekend, especially in one critical state. >> "oh (io), oh (io)" >> brown: the president made three stops in the buckeye state, starting in hilliard, just outside columbus. >> in 2008, we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. and this morning, we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. ( applause ) >> brown: and the trend line seemed promising, as well. since july, the economy has added an average of 173,000 jobs per month, up from just 67,000 a month in the spring. at the same time, though, the unemployment rate ticked up a tenth of a point in october to 7.9% as more people began looking for work again. in west allis, wisconsin, the president's republican challenger, mitt romney, focused on that number, insisting again, "we can do better." >> he said he was going to
by president obama and mitt romney, the issue is almost never mentioned in this key battleground state. it's surprising. because although latinos make up only 5% of iowa's population, their numbers have increased by 110% over the last ten years. perhaps nowhere is that growth more evident than right here. perry, iowa, has a population of about 8,000 people. it's located north and west of des moines, and was founded by german immigrants who worked on the railroad. but over the last 30 years, the pulation has connged. immigrants have come from central and south america looking for work, and they're finding it at the local meat packing plant.ng jay pattee owns ben's five and dime store and serves as the town's mayor. he's watched as nearly 3,000 latino immigrants arrived in perry, many to work at the tyson pork processing plant. >> perry was a pretty ivory place in 1980 when we moved here. and when it started to change, i think some people were afraid of the change. i guess it's the fear of the unexpected. >> reporter: does that exist at all today? >> maybe so. it's a lot less evident than it
: i'm feeling a surge in this state. i think it's coming down to jobs and obama really messed up when he decided to support the environmental cysts over our natural gas workers and coal miners. he threw them under the bus. and now i think it's going to cost him. host: we go next to pennsylvania. kathy democrat's line. how do you pronounce where you live? >> thayer. caller: i want to comment on the snat debate. in montana. i've been hearing a lot about people that democrats and republicans we're all americans out here and i'm seeing a lot of frustration with a lot of people that why can't we all just get together and stop all this person did this and this person did that? you know, i voted for our president and i've watched in disgrace that nobody has any kind of respect for him. he's really tried. he's trying now. he's standing up for all americans. he's been honest. he's still fighting for us. and why is it that everybody keeps complaining and blaming the government? it's not the system that's the problem. it's the people who are misusing the system. it's like if they're in there and
